Been using a Camp Chef stove/oven for over 4 years. Finally took a dump. Purchased another camp chef that was the professional one with a bit more space and higher BTUs. Out of the box, it was junk. Customer service kept trying to make us replace parts to fix it therefore breaking the warranty. Long story short, we found this as an alternative. On first review, out of the box it has a few cosmetic flaws but nothing that would keep it from functioning. The stove BTUs are higher and hold a flame better in the wind. The oven seems like it’s on steroids compared to the camp chef. I had issues keeping the camp chef stove lit in the wind. This is not the case with the Flame King. It’s a bit tricky to learn the adjustment for the stove temperature but once you do, this handles like a champ.
PROS: Better BTUs than previous camp chef
Sturdy and better built oven compartment especially in the wind
Comparable price to other competitors
CONS: Oven space is a bit smaller so need to take that into consideration when wanting to do some outdoor
cooking for a large group
Petty but I don’t care for the bright green top
The temperature gauge that is included gets in the way of cooking a full size dish so you are
constantly fighting with that.
Overall, I would recommend the flame king over the camp chef. If you are on the fence, go with flame king. You’ll be happy you did.
